Jack Kilby   –   Love is a Song Anyone Can Sing


O’s Notes: Jack Kilby is a drummer, producer and arranger. The Front Line is his band including composer Charles Owens (t-sax), John D’Earth (t), Elad Cohen (tb), Allyn Johnson (p) and Kris Monson (b). After a warm intro by vocalist Micah Robinson, they spring into a bouncy swinging groove on the title track with rich brass harmonies that reoccur throughout the session. We enjoyed timeless classics like “Pure Imagination”, “Sensitive Like Ladies” and “A Tribute To Someone”. These are just a few of many solid selections that make Love Is A Song Anyone Can Sing an enjoyable set. Guest artists enhance the outing even moreso notably Antonio Hart’s sax solos on “Life In A Glasshouse” and “Jupiter”, and Christie Dashiell’s vocals on “Colors Of The Wind” and “Pure Imagination (Reimagined)”.

Since 1988 Kari-On Productions has helped artists get an even footing in the industry through jazz promotion in the genres of Jazz, World & Latin Jazz through Jazz Radio and Publicity. Why do we do both, because they compliment each other, and we care about fiscal longevity for the artist.
